About Maurice


Bio

Hi! I'm a UC Berkeley grad with a degree in Cognitive Science, who has worked in Silicon Valley and currently works at a web app startup. I've been a lifelong student in many arenas, including standardized tests (I first took the SAT in 6th grade, and got a perfect score with no questions wrong in high school, plus a perfect 36 in ACT and 800's on SAT II Math and English), photography (self-taught), magic (performance magic, like David Copperfield!).

Hi! I'm a UC Berkeley grad with a degree in Cognitive Science, who has worked in Silicon Valley and currently works at a web app startup. I've been a lifelong student in many arenas, including standardized tests (I first took the SAT in 6th grade, and got a perfect score with no questions wrong in high school, plus a perfect 36 in ACT and 800's on SAT II Math and English), photography (self-taught), magic (performance magic, like David Copperfield!). In addition to 15+ years of tutoring, I have a lot of experience working with youth, through non-profit volunteer work as well as church ministry.

I can help your student get to the next level in their high school math, science, and English classes, as well as assist them with the right path toward improving their standardized test score (and maybe scoring a perfect too!). Some of the feedback I've received from previous students and their parents are that I am knowledgeable, patient, and able to break down complex ideas into comprehensible chunks. I have a firm stance against "negative self talk" and believe that every student has the potential to improve academically, if given a chance to understand their strengths and weaknesses, and practice new skills in a safe environment. I love helping students grow!

I also have experience working with adult learners who are going back to school, doing a career switch, picking up that GED they never got to. Through my own life experiences I understand how early setbacks can negatively impact someone for years. I'm committed to help you through significant milestones, as I have with previous clients who took the GED, passed their college entrance and placement exams, and prepared for continuing education.

I was in a MathCounts team that won 1st place in Chicago in seventh grade, and was on math team at my high school (Illinois Math and Science Academy) that won several state-wide awards, in addition to perfect math section scores on SAT, ACT, SAT II, GRE, and AP Calculus BC. I have also tutored math to students rangin
